I’ve admired a few women in my life.
Every once in awhile, you come across someone who exemplifies everything you admire. You look at her with awe and hope that someday… you can become like her. That someday you’ll be as beautiful on the inside, and out, as she is.
The bummer comes in getting there.
In becoming like her.
In developing the beauty that comes from meeting life and conquering its challenges with grace, dignity and class. (At least, that’s my goal.)
Someday, I want to be a woman like that.
“Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It’s the sure footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life.” (Ann Landers)
And if I ever become such a woman, I’m going to have to thank my unexpected life for that, too.
